Rescued Shadow Needs A Home

Stephanie pulled Shadow from the Payette high kill holding facility. We think she was abused and neglected.  We thought she was 4-6 months as she is tiny but might be 1-2 yrs. old.   I met her a few days ago.  A real sweetheart. Black dogs are VERY DIFFICULT to place here.   I will pay for all her vaccinations.  Here are photos of Shadow; she has a long lab tail that was between her legs in the photos.  When she is scared she just freezes or tries to escape.

Here are details from Stephanie, her foster mom, and photos of SHADOW.

  • Weight: 40 lbs.  20 inches at the shoulder.
  • She is housebroken and isn’t a chewer; she is starting to play with tennis balls.
  • Lab and ??:   She is thick coated but it is not curly.  Solid black. 
  • Energy level:    She is very calm if you sit on the couch she finds a place on the floor by the couch and lays down, she will occasionally follow the kids around but not a whole lot.  And ideal home environment? Her ideal would be someone who is home a lot, she really likes to be with people. I named her SHADOW because she is a lot like my shadow wherever I go.
  • How is she with your other dogs?    She is fine with my dogs though the Dane trying to play with her makes her quite nervous and she runs, she doesn’t bark or growl she just tries to get away from them if they get overexcited with her.
  • With kids less than 6 yrs.:    I have a 4 yr old and a 1 1/2yr old she is good with them but they scare her sometimes with all of the running and noise, she has NOT shown any signs of aggression even when she is really scared she just tries really hard to get away. She is not a fan of the crate at all. She takes a little while to warm up but when she does it is well worth the wait.
  • She may be fixed already, no sign of ever having a litter or a heat.
  • She is a very sweet cuddle bug, when she sneaks into bed she snuggles as close as she can get to you. She could use some more weight but we are working on that.
  • VERY CAT friendly.
